Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm were German academics who collected and published folklore during the 19th century. Many of the tales they wrote down had previously only been passed down orally. The first collection of their fairy tales was published in 1812 to a lukewarm reception as they were not considered suitable for children. Over the next 45 years they were to be rewritten, expanded upon and sanitized seven times. There were originally around 150 stories, but now they are credited with having penned over 200. Their tales will be forever immortalised in popular culture helped in no small way by a string of Walt Disney films.

HarperCollins is proud to present its new range of best-loved, essential classics. `The wolf thought to himself, "What a tender young creature! what a nice plump mouthful - she will be better to eat than the old woman. I must act craftily, so as to catch both."' Collected by the German Grimm brothers, these folk tales have captured the imaginations of children and adults alike since they were first published in 1812. The best-known stories such as The Golden Goose, Hansel and Gretel, The Frog Prince, and Snow-White and Rose-Red remain as popular today as when first told, although there is an underlying darkness and violence to the original stories that has softened over time.

When Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm published their Children's and Household Tales in 1812, followed by a second volume in 1815, they had no idea that such stories as "Rapunzel," "Hansel and Gretel," and "Cinderella" would become the most celebrated in the world. Yet few people today are familiar with the majority of tales from the two early volumes, since in the next four decades the Grimms would publish six other editions, each extensively revised in content and style. For the very first time, The Original Folk and Fairy Tales of the Brothers Grimm makes available in English all 156 stories from the 1812 and 1815 editions. These narrative gems, newly translated and brought together in one beautiful book, are accompanied by sumptuous new illustrations from award-winning artist Andrea Dezso. From "The Frog King" to "The Golden Key," wondrous worlds unfold--heroes and heroines are rewarded, weaker animals triumph over the strong, and simple bumpkins prove themselves not so simple after all. Esteemed fairy tale scholar Jack Zipes offers accessible translations that retain the spare description and engaging storytelling style of the originals. Indeed, this is what makes the tales from the 1812 and 1815 editions unique--they reflect diverse voices, rooted in oral traditions, that are absent from the Grimms' later, more embellished collections of tales. Zipes's introduction gives important historical context, and the book includes the Grimms' prefaces and notes. A delight to read, The Original Folk and Fairy Tales of the Brothers Grimm presents these peerless stories to a whole new generation of readers.

The example by which many others have followed, the Brothers Grimm collected the stories of German folk lore in an act of romantic nationalism. They believed that the best way to preserve history was through linguistic traditions and that fairy tales were most representative of a place.

The Brothers Grimm's fairy tales are brought to life for a new generation of readers in their original, uncut form by the modern master of gothic horror, Gris Grimly. Grimm. The name alone is enough to call to mind any number of the timeless fairy tales collected by brothers Jacob and Wilhelm in the early nineteenth century. These folktales have been told and retold in many forms for over two centuries, and while the particular mix of fantasy, adventure, and wonder that defined their seven-volume collection has endured, the terror, violence, and darkness of the original stories has often been lost in translation. Enter Gris Grimly, who has faithfully reproduced the original text of a selection of tales and adorned them with his own inimitable artwork. The result is a Grimm collection unlike any other, set in a world that is whimsically sinister, darkly vivid, and completely unforgettable.

German children's series shown in the '70s, became a cult favourite. The show is remembered by many who were children in the late '60s and '70s primarily because it was pretty creepy, all in all. The basic premise is that a prince asks for the hand of a beautiful princess. She rejects his gift of pebbles and demands instead a magical tree. The prince searches long and hard for such a tree and, in the land of an evil dwarf, he finds it. The dwarf tells the prince that if he can indeed win the love of the princess by giving her the tree he may do so: if however he does not succeed there will be a price to pay. The princess has no love in her heart, and the dwarf casts spells, which turn the prince into a bear and make the princess lose all her beauty. The bear carries her off to live with him in the dwarf-realm in a cave. Her bed is of moss and she has berries to eat. But even in the evil dwarf-realm kindness can be learned and love can grow. With each act of kindness some of her beauty is restored and the dwarf's power over them becomes weaker. With the help of her new animal friends she prevails over the dwarf. Not only is their previous condition restored but now the magical tree might sing/ring for her also.
